The education bill was passed in the George W. Bush administration to make sure every school would be funded largely from local property taxes. The administration also passed a bill called the “No child left behind act” which makes the teachers and schools responsible for the students passing the skills test in order to move on to the next grade. Every school has the responsibility to make sure that every teacher is teaching the curriculum that the state requires. The national standards and testing are included in this act and it is the teacher who will suffer if his or her students do not pass the testing necessary to move on. The bill states that the teacher will not receive their yearly raise and could even lose their job if a certain
Part 1: The five phases of behavior assessment are (a) screening and general disposition, (b) defining and generally quantifying problems or desired achievement criteria, (c) pinpointing the target behavior(s) to be treated, (d) monitoring progress and (e) following up (Cooper, Heron & Heward, 2007). Screening and general disposition is used to discover and identify any number of variables that may influence the occurrence of problem behaviors. Defining and generally quantifying problems or desired achievement criteria is when you establish the goal for change and the steps required to achieve it. Pinpointing the target behavior(s) to be treated is when you specifying target behaviors. Monitoring progress is when you work on the procedures needed for reorganization and observation of the changed behavior.
Critically evaluate theoretical approaches to understanding behaviour management as a process and critically reflect on how this impacts on your values and assumptions about effective behaviour management, supported by examples from your school experience. Introduction Behaviour management in the primary classroom is a topic discussed at length by all teachers in Primary Schools throughout the world and has also been researched extensively by academics. The management of children’s behaviour in the primary classroom is vitally important so that a positive learning environment is created. Forty percent of teachers spend more time keeping order than teaching (Johnson, 2004). Students awarded Qualified Teacher Status need to “Manage behaviour effectively to ensure a good and safe learning environment” (DfES, 2012).
The Keynesian economic policies were to allow the government to increase their control over the American citizens. The New Deal was the social-welfare liberalism, which allowed the federal government to grow at an astronomical rate. The New Deal had a powerful impact on the unemployed, African Americans, women, Native Americans, and other racial minorities.

The progressives made the first comprehensive efforts to grapple with the ills of modern urban-industrial society. Speaking of origins of Progressivism, a few things can be mentioned. First of all, severe decline in agricultural prices; secondly – economic depression. It also springs from two bodies of belief and knowledge – evangelical Protestantism and the natural and social sciences. The way Progressivism worked was through gathering the necessary information and applying it in solving the problem; by mandating government and blending religion and science into a view of how human should behave.
Systemic racism is ubiquitous in the lives of African American women. The story structure consists a beginning, middle, and the resolution/ending. It followed Todorov’s theory perfectly. The stories are very believable because I have experienced workplace discrimination and have spoken with other women about their experiences. The best intent of the story is to educate people of the pervasiveness of racism and how the African American female, who has always been on the bottom of society, has been/is treated by society.
The Progressive Era, from the 1890’s to 1920’s, marked the movement of reform, aiming to protect social welfare, restore economic opportunities, and promote moral improvement in America. As the 20th century approached, many reformers of the middle-class addressed problems that contributed to the commotion in the earlier years. The Progressive Era inspired many reform activities, such as instructing poor immigrants and workers the values of hard work and temperance. The public became more aware of the problems across the country as journalists and writers exposed the labor conditions faced by factory workers. One particular reform felt that promoting moral improvement was more important in improving the lives of poor people than reform in the workplace.
1890-1930 The problems facing the nation in the late 19th century gave rise to the Progressive movement. Progressives were a diverse group with various--and sometimes contradictory--agendas. However, most focused on the problems arising from rapid industrialization, urbanization, increasing immigration, and corruption in the worlds of business and politics. Two of the problems confronted by Progressives are still central today. One was the dilemma of how to maintain the material benefits that flowed from the industrial revolution while bringing the powerful forces creating those benefits under democratic control and managing economic opportunity.
